About Us

Metalico is a British engineering company based in Corby, Northamptonshire. Family-owned and established for over 30 years, we pride ourselves in manufacturing the highest-quality, conservation-grade cabinets and plan chests.


All our products are designed and manufactured in-house by a small team with hundreds of years’ experience between them! As well as our standard range, we’re always happy to tailor products to your exact specification, including BS 4971:2017 and BS EN 16893:2018, the latest standards for museum conservation and construction.

We often work on large projects, liaising with project managers, as well as other specialist companies to ensure Metalico cabinets fit seamlessly with mobile base units, compactorised storage and other design elements. We are available to install and part-assemble on site if necessary.

We make all our products to order and are there for our customers every step of the way. Whether you have a specific storage problem to solve or a question about measuring up or installation, we’re happy to help.
